APPLICATION FOR NEW OR RENEWAL OF MALAYSIAN INTERNATIONAL PASSPORT
Please be informed that the Embassy of Malaysia in Bangkok DOES NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO ISSUE OR RENEW THE MALAYSIAN INTERNATIONAL PASSPORT (Machine Readable Version).
With effect from December 2009, the Government of Malaysia has ceased to issue out passport renewal Malaysian Embassies/High Commissions abroad. All renewal process has to be done at the Immigration Office in Malaysia which will issue out machine readable version passport.

(a) returning to Malaysia before the expiry of the passport and renew the passport at any of the Immigration office in Malaysia; or
(b) cross the Malaysia-Thai border and visit any of the Immigration office at Bukit Kayu Hitam, Padang Besar, Alor Setar, Pengkalan Hulu or Rantau Panjang for renewal purposes.
